Mauritius' water stocks are going down, and fast

In October 2021, the seven reservoirs were full at 91.2%. A year later, water stock has fallen drastically to 66.5%.

The situation is said to being closely monitored by the Central Water Authority (CWA), the Water Resources Unit and the Ministry of Energy.

Two reservoirs, La Nicolière and La Ferme, are already below the 50% mark. Last week in Parliament, the Minister of Energy, Joe Lesjongard, maintained that the island should prepare for the worst.

To date, approximately 68% of the population receive an average of 12 to 24 hours of water supply per day, 30% receive, on average, 8 to 12 hours per day and 2%, less than 8 hours of water per day.
